Cooking Ducks and Duckling

Duck Breast  

Think duckling. What comes to mind?

A fatty, gamey, special-occasion dish that's difficult to prepare?

Think again.

Duckling has changed. A lot.

Low in fat.

Low in sodium.

And high in protein.

Duckling can go beak-to-beak with chicken or turkey when it comes to nutritional content. And, it beats them wings down when it comes to succulence and taste. Duckling is one of the most innovative and creative foods in a long time.

 
It Is Easy To Make Duckling

Not all people can afford the time it would take to prepare a whole duck.

Not a problem.

There's whole duckling. Prefect for cutting into parts and preparing however you image.

If you're not interested in cutting up your own bird, we offer pre-packaged parts—boneless breasts and leg quarters that you can bake, broil, pan fry, barbecue, whatever.

Even more convenient is roast half-duckling. In just a little over 15 minutes you have a moist, delicious roast duckling that can be seasoned or sauced however you like.

And possible the most convenient product. Duckling confit. A blend or seasonings and duckling meat. It's perfect for shredding into soups and salads. Dicing into casseroles and sauces. Stuffing into ravioli. It saves you prep time so you have more free time to get creative with duckling.
